  • Polar Plunge is February 28th at Bisset Park.
  • Women’s Resource Center needs help with decorating/painting two new rooms. I will get more information on this.

Professionalism (Casey Hill):

  • Thanks to all that went to the career fair.

Social (Olie Massa):

  • Contracts and money for Banquet are due February 22nd.
  • Will have a better idea on other activities for this semester next chapter.

Alumni (Kimberly Thompson):

  • Met with Emily this week.

Conference (Sammy Rogers):

  • Went to the DPA meeting. We will start working on the shooting range next year.
  • Need members to join DPA. We meet Wednesdays at 7pm.

Old Business:

  • The following motion was voted on and a majority voted to donate $200.00 each semester:


    • Motion: I would like to make a motion that we, as an organization, donate to philanthropy. We can donate either $200.00 every semester or 10% of what money we bring in from fundraising and dues every semester to an organization of our choice.
    • Made by: Hannah Heishman
    • Rationale: I believe it is a good idea that we have philanthropy because the fundraising that we bring in and the dues we pay are for our use only. I believe it will give us something to stand for and another thing we are able to tell potential members. Since we are a criminal justice fraternity I have looked up some law enforcement charities that include the Wounded Warriors Project, National Law Enforcement Officers, C.O.P.S: Concerns of Police Survivors, and Officer Down Memorial.
  • We will vote on which organization to donate to (for this semester) next chapter.

New Business:

  • None
